WHAT IT TAKES TO BE A FATBACK FLT

The crew at Fatback Bikes are always making tweaks to their personal rides to make them just a little better; trying new tires, brakes, drivetrains… So naturally, they do the same with the products they make. They asked "Can we make this stiffer, lighter, more comfortable and increase cold weather performance?"  "Can we improve clearance for larger tires while maintaining narrow Q-factor?"  Each Fat Bike model is designed for a certain purpose and the crew at Fatback focused on what would make each bike pedal, handle, and look better than ever.  Each little aspect of design and performance is contemplated to see what they could improve upon.  With this dedication to improvement, the crew at Fatback has released the new FLT product line, which focuses on bike frames and components with :

  • Light Weight

  • High Performance

  • Premium Ride Quality

WHY MAKE THE RHINO FLT?

Raf Rider on the final finish-line climb of the 2018 P2A Paris-to-Ancaster race - FATBACK RHINO FLT w/ carbon fork.

Because Fatback Bikes of Alaska always strives to make the best. They knew the Rhino was a great bike from the first ride, but not everyone needs or wants to be able to have a single speed. So Fatback started making the changes from there; they kept the chain stays at their shortest, added internal routing for a dropper post, and locked the engineers in a room until they came up with the best possible tubing profiles for this bike. Put it all together and the Rhino FLT was born.  (and from our testing at RideFATbikes.ca, we can say this is one beautiful alloy frame!)

RHINO FLT

Performance at its best. The all new Rhino FLT sets the standard for performance alloy fat bikes. Light weight, increased stiffness and superior handling in all conditions.  Call or email us today, to set up a test ride in the Burlington area.
